Abstract

A customized patient-specific patella resectioning guide is disclosed. The customized patient-specific patella resectioning guide includes a body and a cutting guide coupled to the body. The body includes a customized patient-specific negative contour configured to receive a portion of the posterior side of a patient's patella. The cutting guide may be a captured or non-captured cutting guide. A method for fabricating and using such orthopaedic guides is also disclosed.

Description

    TECHNICAL FIELD
  • The present disclosure relates generally to customized patient-specific orthopaedic surgical instruments and more particularly to customized patient-specific patella resectioning guides.
  • BACKGROUND
  • Joint arthroplasty is a well-known surgical procedure by which a diseased and/or damaged natural joint is replaced by a prosthetic joint. A typical knee prosthesis includes a tibial tray, a femoral component, and a polymer insert or bearing positioned between the tibial tray and the femoral component. In some cases, the knee prosthesis may also include a prosthetic patella component, which is secured to a posterior side of the patient's surgically-prepared patella. To do so, an orthopaedic surgeon may resect the posterior side of the patient's natural patella to secure the prosthetic component thereto. In use, the patella component articulates with the patient's natural or prosthetic femur during extension and flexion of the patient's knee.
  • To facilitate the replacement of the natural joint with the knee prosthesis, orthopaedic surgeons use a variety of orthopaedic surgical instruments such as, for example, cutting blocks, drill guides, milling guides, and other surgical instruments. Typically, the orthopaedic surgical instruments are generic with respect to the patient such that the same orthopaedic surgical instrument may be used on a number of different patients during similar orthopaedic surgical procedures.
  • SUMMARY
  • According to one aspect, a customized patient-specific orthopaedic instrument may include a customized patient-specific patella resectioning guide. The customized patient-specific patella resectioning guide may have a body including a bone-facing surface having a customized patient-specific negative contour configured to receive a portion of a posterior side of a patient's patella that has a corresponding positive contour. The customized patient-specific patella resectioning guide may also include a cutting guide coupled to the body. The cutting guide may include a cutting slot defined therein and the cutting slot may define a resectioning plane. The cutting guide may be positioned such that the resectioning plane extends through the patient's patella when the patella is received in the customized patient-specific negative contour of the body.
  • In some embodiments, the cutting guide may be formed from a material different from the material forming the body. The cutting guide may be formed from a metallic material or a non-metallic material. In some embodiments, the body may be formed from a polymeric material. In such embodiments, the cutting guide may be overmolded with the body. Additionally, in some embodiments, the body may have an outer surface opposite the bone-facing surface.
  • The resectioning guide may further include a medial side corresponding to the medial side of the patient's patella when patella is received in the customized patient-specific negative contour of the body. Additionally, the resectioning guide may include a lateral side corresponding to the lateral side of the patient's patella when the patella is received in the customized patient-specific negative contour of the body. The cutting slot of the cutting guide may include a first opening on the medial side of the resectioning guide. The first opening may be sized to receive a cutting saw blade. In some embodiments, the cutting slot of the cutting guide may include a second opening on the lateral side of the resectioning guide. The second opening may also be sized to receive a cutting saw blade. Additionally, in some embodiments, the resectioning guide may include an indentation formed on the medial side of the resectioning guide. The indentation may extend from the outer surface of the body to the cutting slot of the cutting guide.
  • In some embodiments, the body of the resectioning guide may include a sidewall extending upwardly from the bone-facing surface and intersecting with the resectioning plane to prevent the cutting saw blade from extending beyond the body. The sidewall may be positioned on the lateral side of the resectioning guide in some embodiments. Additionally, the cutting guide may be positioned on the medial side of the resectioning guide such that the customized patient-specific negative contour of the body may be positioned between the cutting guide and the sidewall.
  • Additionally, in some embodiments, the outer surface may have an indentation shaped to receive a clamp operable to secure the patella to the body. Additionally (or alternatively), the indentation may be sized to receive a thumb of a surgeon such that the body and patella may be held between the thumb and forefinger of the orthopaedic surgeon. Further, in some embodiments, the resectioning guide may further include compressible foam material secured to the outer surface of the body.
  • According to another aspect, a customized patient-specific orthopaedic instrument may include a customized patient-specific resectioning guide. The customized patient-specific resectioning guide may include a body having a bone-facing surface including a customized patient-specific negative contour configured to receive a portion of a posterior side of a patient's patella that has a corresponding positive contour. The resectioning guide may also include a non-captured cutting guide. The non-captured cutting guide may include a cutting surface defining a resectioning plane. The cutting guide may be positioned such that the resectioning plane extends through the patient's patella when the patella is received in the customized patient-specific negative contour of the body.
  • In some embodiments, the resectioning guide may further include a medial side corresponding to the medial side of the patient's patella when the portion of the posterior side of the patient's patella is received in the customized patient-specific negative contour of the body. Additionally, the resectioning guide may include a lateral side corresponding to the lateral side of the patient's patella when the portion of the posterior side of the patient's patella is received in the customized patient-specific negative contour of the body. The body may also include a sidewall extending upwardly from the bone-facing surface and intersecting with the resectioning plane to prevent the cutting saw blade from extending beyond the body. In some embodiments, the sidewall may be positioned on the lateral side of the resectioning guide. In such embodiments, the cutting guide may be positioned on the medial side of the resectioning guide such that the customized patient-specific negative contour of the body is positioned between the cutting guide and the sidewall.
  • According to a further aspect, a customized patient-specific orthopaedic instrument may include a customized patient-specific patella resectioning guide. The customized patient-specific patella resectioning guide may have a body including a first bone-facing surface having a customized patient-specific negative contour configured to receive a portion of a posterior side of a patient's patella that has a corresponding positive contour and a second bone-facing surface opposite the first bone-facing surface. The second bone-facing surface may include a customized patient-specific negative contour configured to receive a portion of a distal end of the patient's femur that has a corresponding positive contour. The resectioning guide may also include a cutting guide coupled to the body. The cutting guide may also include a cutting slot defined therein. The cutting slot may define a resectioning plane. The cutting guide may be positioned such that the resectioning plane extends through the patient's patella when the patella is received in the customized patient-specific contour of the first bone-facing surface of the body.
  • In some embodiments, the resectioning guide may further include a medial side corresponding to the medial side of the patient's patella when the portion of the posterior side of the patient's patella is received in the customized patient-specific negative contour of the body. Additionally, the resectioning guide may include a lateral side corresponding to the lateral side of the patient's patella when the portion of the posterior side of the patient's patella is received in the customized patient-specific negative contour of the body. The cutting slot of the cutting guide may include an opening on the lateral side of the resectioning guide. The opening may be sized to receive a cutting saw blade.
  • Additionally, in some embodiments, the resectioning guide may further include an enclosed housing extending upwardly from the bone-facing surface of the body. The enclosed housing may be spaced apart from the cutting guide. The enclosed housing may have an aperture co-planar with the resectioning plane defined by the cutting slot. Additionally, the enclosed housing may be positioned on the medial side of the resectioning guide, and the cutting guide may be positioned on the lateral side of the resectioning guide such that the customized patient-specific negative contour is formed between the cutting guide and the enclosed housing.

  • DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE DRAWINGS
  • While the concepts of the present disclosure are susceptible to various modifications and alternative forms, specific exemplary embodiments thereof have been shown by way of example in the drawings and will herein be described in detail. It should be understood, however, that there is no intent to limit the concepts of the present disclosure to the particular forms disclosed, but on the contrary, the intention is to cover all modifications, equivalents, and alternatives falling within the spirit and scope of the invention as defined by the appended claims.
  • Terms representing anatomical references, such as anterior, posterior, medial, lateral, superior, inferior, etcetera, may be used throughout the specification in reference to the orthopaedic implants and surgical instruments described herein as well as in reference to the patient's natural anatomy. Such terms have well-understood meanings in both the study of anatomy and the field of orthopaedics. Use of such anatomical reference terms in the written description and claims is intended to be consistent with their well-understood meanings unless noted otherwise.
  • Referring to FIG. 1, an algorithm 10 for fabricating a customized patient-specific orthopaedic surgical instrument is illustrated. What is meant herein by the term “customized patient-specific orthopaedic surgical instrument” is a surgical tool for use by a surgeon in performing an orthopaedic surgical procedure that is intended, and configured, for use on a particular patient. As such, it should be appreciated that, as used herein, the term “customized patient-specific orthopaedic surgical instrument” is distinct from standard, non-patient specific orthopaedic surgical instruments that are intended for use on a variety of different patients. Additionally, it should be appreciated that, as used herein, the term “customized patient-specific orthopaedic surgical instrument” is distinct from orthopaedic prostheses, whether patient-specific or generic, which are surgically implanted in the body of the patient. Rather, customized patient-specific orthopaedic surgical instruments are used by an orthopaedic surgeon to assist in the implantation of orthopaedic prostheses.
  • In some embodiments, the customized patient-specific orthopaedic surgical instrument may be customized to the particular patient based on the location at which the instrument is to be coupled to one or more bones of the patient. For example, in some embodiments, the customized patient-specific orthopaedic instrument may be a customized patient-specific patella resectioning guide including one or more bone-contacting or facing surfaces having a negative contour that matches the contour of a portion of the patient's patella, which is discussed in more detail below in regard to FIGS. 2-10. As such, the customized patient-specific patella resectioning guide is configured to be coupled to the patient's patella at a unique location and position with respect to the patient's bony anatomy. That is, the negative contours of the bone-contacting surfaces are configured to receive a matching contour surface of the portion of the patient's patella (and, in some cases, femur). As such, the orthopaedic surgeon's guesswork and/or intra-operative decision-making with respect to the placement of the patient-specific patella resectioning guide are reduced. The orthopaedic surgeon may simply couple the customized patient-specific patella resectioning guide to the patient's patella. When so coupled, the customized patient-specific patella resectioning guide defines the thickness of bone the surgeon will resect from the posterior side of the patient's patella.
  • As shown in FIG. 1, the method 10 includes process steps 12 and 14, in which an orthopaedic surgeon performs pre-operative planning of the patella resectioning procedure to be performed on a patient. The process steps 12 and 14 may be performed in any order or contemporaneously with each other. In process step 12, a number of medical images of the patient's patella and the surrounding bony anatomy are generated. To do so, the orthopaedic surgeon or other healthcare provider may operate an imaging system to generate the medical images. The medical images may be embodied as any number and type of medical images capable of being used to generate a three-dimensional rendered model of the patient's patella and surrounding bony anatomy. For example, the medical images may be embodied as any number of computed tomography (CT) images, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) images, or other three-dimensional medical images. Additionally, or alternatively, as discussed in more detail below in regard to process step 18, the medical images may be embodied as a number of X-ray images or other two-dimensional images from which a three-dimensional rendered model of the patient's patella and the surrounding bony anatomy may be generated.
  • In process step 14, the orthopaedic surgeon may determine any additional pre-operative constraint data. The constraint data may be based on the orthopaedic surgeon's preferences, preferences of the patient, anatomical aspects of the patient, guidelines established by the healthcare facility, or the like. For example, the constraint data may include the orthopaedic surgeon's preference for a particular prosthesis type, the thickness of the bone to resect, the size range of the orthopaedic implant, and/or the like. In some embodiments, the orthopaedic surgeon's preferences are saved as a surgeon's profile, which may be used as a default constraint values for further surgical plans.
  • In process step 16, the medical images and the constraint data, if any, are transmitted or otherwise provided to an orthopaedic surgical instrument vendor or manufacturer. The medical images and the constraint data may be transmitted to the vendor via electronic means such as a network or the like. After the vendor has received the medical images and the constraint data, the vendor processes the images in step 18. The orthopaedic surgical instrument vendor or manufacturer process the medical images to facilitate the determination of the proper positioning of the prosthetic component, implant sizing, and fabrication of the customized patient-specific patella resectioning guide as discussed in more detail below.
  • In process step 20, the vendor may convert or otherwise generate three-dimensional images from the medical images. For example, in embodiments wherein the medical images are embodied as a number of two-dimensional images, the vendor may use a suitable computer algorithm to generate one or more three-dimensional images from the number of two-dimensional images. Additionally, in some embodiments, the medical images may be generated based on an established standard such as the Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM) standard. In such embodiments, an edge-detection, thresholding, watershed, or shape-matching algorithm may be used to convert or reconstruct images to a format acceptable in a computer aided design application or other image processing application. Further, in some embodiments, an algorithm may be used to account for tissue such as cartilage not discernable in the generated medical images. In such embodiments, any three-dimensional model of the patient-specific instrument (see, e.g., process step 26 below) may be modified according to such algorithm to increase the fit and function of the instrument.
  • In process step 22, the vendor may process the medical images, and/or the converted/reconstructed images from process step 20, to determine a number of aspects related to the bony anatomy of the patient such as the anatomical axis of the patient's bones, the mechanical axis of the patient's bone, other axes and various landmarks, and/or other aspects of the patient's bony anatomy. To do so, the vendor may use any suitable algorithm to process the images.
  • In process step 24, the resectioning plane of the patient's patella is determined. The planned resectioning plane is determined based on the type, size, and position of the prosthetic patella component to be used during the orthopaedic procedure, on the process images such as specific landmarks identified in the images, and on the constraint data supplied by the orthopaedic surgeon in process steps 14 and 16. The type and/or size of the prosthetic patella component may be determined based on the patient's anatomy and the constraint data. For example, the constraint data may dictate the type, make, model, size, or other characteristic of the prosthetic patella component. The selection of the prosthetic patella component may also be modified based on the medical images such that a prosthetic component usable with the bony anatomy of the patient and matching the constraint data or preferences of the orthopaedic surgeon is selected.
  • In addition to the type and size of the prosthetic patella component, the planned location and position of the prosthetic patella component relative to the patient's bony anatomy is determined. To do so, a digital template of the prosthetic patella component may be overlaid onto one or more of the processed medical images. The vendor may use any suitable algorithm to determine a recommended location and orientation of the prosthetic patella component (i.e., the digital template) with respect to the patient's bone based on the processed medical images (e.g., landmarks of the patient's patella and/or femur defined in the images) and/or the constraint data. Additionally, any one or more other aspects of the patient's bony anatomy may be used to determine the proper positioning of the digital template. In some embodiments, the digital template along with surgical alignment parameters may be presented to the orthopaedic surgeon for approval.
  • The planned resectioning planes for the patient's patella may then be determined based on the determined size, location, and orientation of the prosthetic patella component. In addition, other aspects of the patient's bony anatomy, as determined in process step 22, may be used to determine or adjust the planned resectioning planes. For example, the determined mechanical axis, landmarks, and/or other determined aspects of the femur and/or patella of the patient may be used to determine the planned resectioning planes.
  • In process step 26, a model of the customized patient-specific patella resectioning guide is generated. In some embodiments, the model is embodied as a three-dimensional rendering of the customized patient-specific patella resectioning guide. In other embodiments, the model may be embodied as a mock-up or fast prototype of the customized patient-specific patella resectioning guide. The customized patient-specific patella resectioning guide to be modeled and fabricated may be determined based on the patella orthopaedic surgical procedure to be performed, the constraint data, and/or the type of prosthetic patella component to be implanted in the patient.
  • The particular shape of the customized patient-specific patella resectioning guide is determined based on the planned location of the patella resectioning guide relative to the patient's bony anatomy. The location of the customized patient-specific patella resectioning guide with respect to the patient's bony anatomy is determined based on the type and determined location of the prosthetic patella component to be used during the orthopaedic surgical procedure. That is, the planned location of the customized patient-specific patella resectioning guide relative to the patient's bony anatomy may be selected based on, in part, the planned resectioning planes of the patient's bone(s) as determined in step 24. For example, the location of the patella resectioning guide is selected such that the cutting guide of the patella resectioning guide matches one or more of the planned resectioning planes determined in process step 24. Additionally, the planned location of the patella resectioning guide may be based on the identified landmarks of the patient's patella and femur identified in process step 22.
  • In some embodiments, the particular shape or configuration of the customized patient-specific patella resectioning guide may be determined based on the planned location of the guide relative to the patient's bony anatomy. That is, the customized patient-specific patella resectioning guide may include a bone-contacting surface having a negative contour that matches a corresponding positive contour of a portion of the patella of the patient. The positive contour of the portion of the patella of the patient may be received in the negative contour of the patella resectioning guide such that the patella is placed in a unique location. When the patella resectioning guide receives the patient's patella, one or more guides (e.g., cutting guide) of the patella resectioning guide may be aligned to the one or more of the resectioning plane(s), as discussed above.
  • After the model of the customized patient-specific patella resectioning guide has been generated in process step 26, the model is validated in process step 28. The model may be validated by, for example, analyzing the rendered model while the three-dimensional model of the patient's patella is received in the resectioning guide model to verify the correlation of the cutting guide and the resectioning plane. Additionally, the model may be validated by transmitting or otherwise providing the model generated in step 26 to the orthopaedic surgeon for review. For example, in embodiments wherein the model is a three-dimensional rendered model, the model along with the three-dimensional images of the patient's relevant bone(s) may be transmitted to the surgeon for review. In embodiments wherein the model is a physical prototype, the model may be shipped to the orthopaedic surgeon for validation.
  • After the model has been validated in process step 28, the customized patient-specific patella resectioning guide is fabricated in process step 30. The customized patient-specific patella resectioning guide may be fabricated using any suitable fabrication device and method. Additionally, the customized patient-specific patella resectioning guide may be formed from any suitable material such as a metallic material, a plastic material, or combination thereof depending on, as discussed in more detail below. The fabricated customized patient-specific patella resectioning guide is subsequently shipped or otherwise provided to the orthopaedic surgeon. The surgeon performs the orthopaedic surgical procedure in process step 32 using the customized patient-specific patella resectioning guide. As discussed above, because the orthopaedic surgeon does not need to determine the proper location of the patella resectioning guide intra-operatively, which typically requires some amount of estimation on part of the surgeon, the guesswork and/or intra-operative decision-making on part of the orthopaedic surgeon is reduced.
  • It should also be appreciated that variations in the bony anatomy of the patient may require more than one customized patient-specific patella resectioning guide to be fabricated according to the method described herein. For example, the patient may require the implantation of two prosthetic patella components to replace both natural knees. As such, the surgeon may follow the method 10 of FIG. 1 to fabricate a different customized patient-specific patella resectioning guide for use in replacing each natural knee. Each customized patient-specific patella resectioning guide defines a particular resectioning plane relative to each particular patella that is different due to the variation in the bony anatomy of each knee joint.
  • Referring now to FIGS. 2-4, in one embodiment, the customized patient-specific patella resectioning guide may be embodied as a patella resectioning guide 40. The resectioning guide 40 is configured to receive a portion of a posterior side 48 of a patient's patella 42 (see FIG. 4). The resectioning guide 40 has a medial side 44 and a lateral side 46. The medial side 44 corresponds to the medial side of the patient's patella 42 when the patella 42 is received in the resectioning guide 40. Similarly, the lateral side 46 corresponds to the lateral side of the patient's patella 42 when the patella 42 is received in the resectioning guide 40. As will be discussed in detail below, the orthopaedic surgeon may use the patella resectioning guide 40 to make a resectioning cut of the patient's patella 42. A prosthetic patella component may be subsequently secured to the resected surface of the posterior side 48 of the patient's patella 42.
  • As shown in FIGS. 2 and 3, the illustrative patella resectioning guide 40 includes a body 50 and a captured cutting guide 52, which is secured to the body 50. In the illustrative embodiment, the body 50 is formed from a polymeric material such as polyethylene or ultra-high molecular weight polypropylene (UHMWP), and the cutting guide 52 is formed from an implant grade metallic material such as steel, titanium, or cobalt chromium. However, in other embodiments, the cutting guide 52 may also be formed from a polymeric material. That is, the body 50 and the cutting guide 52 may be formed from a single monolithic component. As such, the body 50 and the cutting guide 52 may be made of the same or different materials.
